will take credit for all three counties. i told jerry, i'm never going to complain to jerry brown, what he to happen in the state legislature, because i used the first year and a half to insulate myself from all of that, emotionally as well as programmatically to say i'm not going to let the state hurt our city or the federal government. we've got to innovate our way out of this economic dole drum and we are doing so with inviting people here. those of you who take this word challenge, and really can really seriously bring that to fore with your best ideas, this is what i'm doing with all these technology companies. i'm not satisfied with just hosting a new company in the city, i want to know what they're doing, who's working there, where they're coming from, what they plan for the five or 10 years and how we can help them grow. as they're growing their jobs i want to know technologically how we can help. that's why i love going to accelerators, to find out what are the next five years that we're incubating so when it comes like what happened last week with dr. yam naka working at gladston

myself and some other folks why black and brown students are behind in credits? this is the main question, why are they behind in credits? if we don't know the reasons and what causes it, we cannot easily find the solution. i come from a family of middle-class family and my mom she was a teacher junior high for about 37 years. i had an opportunity to learn more than the average student because i had the proper materials, proper assistance. so the kids coming from poor familis if they don't have the extra support, they won't succeed. that is why they are behind. there are more reasons. i remember of the last debate, the madame there was great and fired up. i was really impressed and i think we should have more people like you on school boards. people who are really inspired and care about the kids. more academic opportunities and tutors and more oversight to recover this problem. because some kids they learn. based on cultural experience. for me coming to the united states, i did not know how to speak english. i only knew how to spate speak portuguese. thank you. >> thank you very much
